Fiver's Honeycomb Christmas Avatar Contest!
« on: December 16, 2015, 05:59:25 PM »
Dear users of Fiver's Honeycomb: As you might have noticed, Christmas day is drawing close and we thought that it would be a nice idea to celebrate this yearly occasion of joy in the warren as well. How? Well, the idea is to have us all wearing nice, custom-made - Christmas-themed avatars to show that we are in the spirit of the season!

To partake on the event, just replace whatever you have now with something Xmas-related and you will be fine (and no, it doesn't have to be a masterpiece nor completely original, the only important thing to consider is that YOU like it).

By the way, here are some nice, free hats and the like to make the job easier for you: https://openclipart.org/tags/santa%20hat?query=santa%20hat&page=1 Please do try to get your avatar up before Christmas Day, so we can appreciate it in its full, insentient glory!

Anything else? Oh yeah, this is called a "contest", right? Well... that part is still on the works. Stay tuned and stuff.

Thanks! But don't let me steal all the cake! You helped with the topic as well (particularly removing my tasteless sense of humor from the draft :D) and coming up with the site :cheers

Oh, boy. I'm not very good at coming up with creative ideas... I will certainly make a nice picture for this, though. Or at least try :p

Really interesting idea.

Thanks to Rosie Willowwater for the avatar!

Dude, I think I can do something about the limit using my unbelievable admin powers (TM) :P

No, really... if the size is preventing you from doing what you want, just PM me and I will see what I can do (the same goes for everyone else, of course).

You're too kind! I was mostly joking, my avatar is comprised of 8 bit vectors anyway. I just exported it at a high resolution and forgot to downsize it. No worries.

Although others may still want to take you up on your offer...

I don't have time. :P I'll put up something vaguely Christmassy, anyway, although it won't be my work. So keep in mind that I'm not in the contest!

Good idea! Thank you for the pictures by the way. They do help!

I might make a new one later if I have time; my current avatar isn't winning any contest :p
Thank you to Chipster-roo for the avatar!
